Announced at Soho House by Gordon Richardson (Creative Director of Topman) and Caroline Rush (Chief Executive of the BFC), the industry looked on at next year’s upcoming designers. Rush called NEWGEN, “a global identifier of talent,” and Richardson described NEWGEN’s newest members as having, “fearless creativity.”
